You’ll taste/smell: The first aromatic expression of this red reveals it as a land wine, with elegant aromas reminiscent of herbs and wet mud, and notes of thyme, red and black fruits, and some jam. Its entry into the mouth is frank, clean, fresh and direct; round but at the same time with nerve. Fine tannins, medium to wide mouth and acidity that makes it a true gastronomic wine.

Good to have it with: steaks, anything grilled, sweetbread

Best to have it: 60-64ºF, 16-18ºC

“Altar Uco is the latest endeavor from beloved Tupungato-based winemaker Juan Pablo Michelini. Affectionately known as Juampi to those who’ve had the pleasure of spending any time with him, he also serves as the head winemaker at his family’s winery, Zorzal. However, this project offers a fresh perspective on what the Uco Valley and more specifically Gualtallary means in the greater conversation on South American wine. Juampi explained to us that he aims to produce “quiet wines” which require as little human intervention as possible – they are made in one or two months before spending years at rest.” – Skurnik
